Rashida Tlaid Sprouts Lies

Recently Congresswoman Rashida Tlaid said that the Palestinians helped save Jews during the Holocaust and created a safe haven for Jews after the war.

Rashida’s lie of what really happened in the past is shrouded in complete misinformation of the sort of treatment the Jews have experience at the hands of their Arab neighbors in Israel during the early twentieth century.

For centuries Muslims did not allow Jews to pray in the Cave of the Patriarchs even though it was a Jewish king who built the sanctuary.

It was the Grand Mufti Haj Amin Al-Husseini who was encourage riots against Jews that resulted in the death of hundreds of Jews from the Hebron Massacre in 1929 to the other Arab riots in 1936.

British occupational government who was in control of the Palestinian Mandate sought to arrest the Mufti.

The clever Mufti escaped Israel and made his way to Germany where he recruited various Muslims to the Waffen SS where they continued to murder Jews.

Al-Hussieni constantly told the Germans not to send the Jews to Israel because he did not want them in their own ancestral homeland.

In response to Arab revolts against the Jews Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain created the White Papers which effectively limited Jewish Immigration to Israel from Europe back in 1939 to only 75,000 Jews in five years effectively condemning millions of Jews to death in Europe.

In April 1936 in the city of Jaffa 14 Jews were murder by an angry Arab mob.

In 1938 in Tiberias Arab rioters killed 19 Jewish residents of the city just because they happened to be Jewish.

These are just a few of many events that occurred when Arabs murdered Jews in cold blood in the twentieth century.

Arabs living in Israel not only made life difficult for Jews but the Jews had to create organizations like the Hagannah and the Irgun to defend themselves against Arab marauders.

Yet, somehow Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib has no real recollection of what actually happened which means she either lied about the past saying Palestinians created a safe haven for Jews or has no real historical background about what happened in the decades before the establishment of Israel.
